Megyn Kelly Staying With Fox News, Could Move Into Primetime Role

Megyn Kelly and Greta Van Susteren are reportedly staying with Fox News.

Several reports suggested that Kelly was being courted by other networks. She is said to have taken meetings with folks at CNN and ABC to chat about potentially jumping ship.

According to The Huffington Post, Megyn Kelly is a rising star at Fox News. In addition to anchoring the early afternoon hours on the cable channel, she also co-hosted the network’s 2012 presidential election coverage alongside Bret Baier.

It’s also being reported that Kelly could move into a more visible role on Fox News during primetime. Since she has proven to be quite popular with viewers, there’s a possibility that Kelly could move into the 10 pm hour should Van Susteren decide to vacate her current position.

While details about the anchors’ contracts are currently being kept under wraps, a source explained to the New York Times that Van Susteren is open to leaving the 10 pm hour for something a little earlier.

If this happens, then Megyn Kelly could make the jump to primetime. However, none of this information has been confirmed by the anchor, Greta Van Susteren, or Fox News. Until that happens, it’s best to treat these reports as nothing more than rumors.

Greta Van Susteren’s husband and lawyer, John Coale, explained that he wasn’t aware of any scheduling changes currently taking place at the network. Coale, who is currently recovering from cancer, suggested that his wife may decide to move to an earlier hour in the near future.

“I’d like to spend some quality time with my wife, at least before 11 pm,” he said. Coale added that he was speaking for himself and not for his wife. Greta Van Susteren has yet to comment on anything.
